The Federal Bureau of Investigations is investigating after a package with a suspicious white substance inside was mailed to a woman’s home in Fayetteville.
Police and firefighters were called to a home on Locust Street early Monday afternoon.
Aimee Tanner said she has no idea who sent the package or why. Tanner does most of her shopping online and like many of us these days, sometimes she forgets what she ordered.
“Maybe it is a nose ring, something tiny? So, I held it up to the sun, it was empty. It didn’t have a piece of paper in it or anything. This package felt different," Tanner said.
With caution, she opened the seal and called 911.
Fayetteville Police and Fayetteville Firefighters responded to the call. They shut down her street as they investigated.
She is still waiting to learn what the white powdery substance inside was. Fayetteville Police said it was sent to a federal crime lab for analysis.
